Builder pens heartfelt poem urging people to stay at home as NHS workers battle coronavirus pandemic

We have all heard the official advice, stay at home and wash your hands, but one 60-year-old from Port Talbot has come up with his own way of getting across that important message.

Derek Davies is a self-employed builder and, like many people, is currently unable to work. Strict measures to prevent the spread of the virus mean that all non-essential businesses have been told to shut their doors and people must stay at home unless for a few select reasons.

Derek is also an amateur poet and decided to use those talents to show his support for NHS staff.

Watch Derek read his poem here:
